Start with Rockin in the Free World and throw the hippy tree-hugging shite in the bin.
(I like the Shocking Pinks idea. How about Shots from Reactor? Or some Trans?)

Hey RE--love that "hippie tree hugging shit" line above! What time period would typify that stuff?

Although a bit tongue in cheek in my post above, I really don't know his "rockin" material from post 75; would there be contributions that an era NY freak like me would find somehow similar to the EKTIN album style?

today is a happy neil day since I will finally be able to buy the 68 release...

WT: I think you want to stay with the in-the-ditch trilogy: on the beach, tonight's the night and time fades away...dilcurrie hits the nail on the head with time fades away...

slow on posting since I would rather see other's opinions and not just ramble my own, especially on a subject that is so close...funny, I asked a similiar question regarding neil on college arrival and was told just to buy decade and you will be set...well, I wore decade out within a month and went on to buy the complete collection up to that time and have continued to buy and listen...though for someone that loves neil I have only owned harvest twice...

though I do need to hear Words on occasion and for that I pull out journey through the past...since it contains a nice long rehearsal take of Words...(journey is great if you can find a copy...)

Here is an amazing boot if you can find it:

(simply put some of the best neil I have heard!!!---during one of the breaks he gives the recipe for his favorite pot treats...)

Citizen Kane Junior Blues 1974 (Soundboard)

Live at the Bottom Line, New York, May 16 1974

The word is that neil went to see Ry Cooder, and was so inspired that he did a special one-hour acoustic guest set after Cooder.

Track 01 Pushed It Over The Edge (Neil calls it "Citizen Kane Junior Blues") (9.6MB)
Track 02 Long May You Run (6.9MB)
Track 03 Greensleeves (4.0MB)
Track 04 Ambulance Blues (14.1MB)
Track 05 Helpless (7.6MB)
Track 06 Revolution Blues (5.1MB)
Track 07 On The Beach (9.4MB)
Track 08 Roll Another Number For The Road (4.0MB)
Track 09 Motion Pictures (14.0MB)
Track 10 Pardon My Heart (6.4MB)
Track 11 Dance, Dance, Dance (3.7MB)
Bonus
Track 12 For The Turnstiles (location unknown, 1973) (5.2MB)
Track 13 Flying On The Ground Is Wrong (Carnegie Hall, 1974-12-05) (6.3MB)

Also there was a chrome dreams album that was never released which has a mixture of tunes that eventually made it onto american stars and bars, zuma and rust...pressed but never released...some of the tunes are the versions later released but others are very different...sedan delivery, hold back the tears and powderfinger (the last two acoustic) are all better than the versions released...if this had been released it might have been the best for that period...

this is sweet:

01. Pocahontas
02. Will To Love
03. Star Of Bethlehem
04. Like A Hurricane
05. Too Far Gone
06. Hold Back The Tears
07. Homegrown
08. Captain Kennedy
09. Stringman
10. Sedan Delivery
11. Powderfinger (acoustic)
12. Look Out For My Love
in other neil news, it

it looks like the big archieve release is scheduled for early 2009:
New details on Neil Young's expansive The Archives Vol. 1 1963-1972 box set, due for release early in 2009, have been revealed.

According to a newly-released trailer, the box set, on 10-disc DVD or Blu-Ray, will contain 128 audio tracks, including 43 unreleased and 13 of these never heard before.

The set, which comes with a 236-page hardback book, will also feature access to thousands of images and hours of video.

One of the videos included is Journey Through The Past, Young's 1974 film never before released on DVD, which includes footage of Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills Nash And Young.

An audio track of 'Aurora' by Young's high school band The Squires is also included.

The previously-released Archives albums, Live At The Fillmore East and Live At Massey Hall 1971, will also be included in the box set, although it is currently believed that the newly-released Sugar Mountain - Live At Canterbury House 1968 will not.

Hey, is Squires the band with Rick James on bass - or was that later? Neil rockin' with Rick James, bitch!

Nevermind - answered my question: The Mynah Birds:

Hey V, I have told this a few times, so sorry if you already heard it, but since you clearly like NY, thought I would repeat it for your sake in case it's new:

An old friend was bird watching one very early morning in rural Marin County (no. SF) in the early 70s when he spied a very special bird go into the woods on a clearly very private residence. He sheepishly knocked on the door at this very early hour and noneother than Neil answered...he acted nonchalant and explained that he just hoped it would be okay with him, the land owner, for he and his friend to pursue the bird, and Neil said "sure...and hold on, let me come with you".

It was really cool I always thought...

actually I have told the story a few times...

and I still haven't got my binoculars out and purchased a bird guide...

I only once very highly shook his hand and said "great show, neil" as he was walking towards his bus. Just kind of stumbled into him as I was trying to get out of the place myself. I could tell that he appreciated the comment. Though someday it would be nice to get a few minutes with him at this local restaurant that we both frequent. I guess, just to thank him more than anything else.

anyway, with all the talk of 9-20 (my b-date, so always a special day) I thought I would listen to 70 and then 90...
enjoying 70 at the moment...I always have to listen to the cumberland blues twice since it is so nice...

so was pigpen basically relegated tambourine duty or something like that during the acoustic set or is he just very low in the mix? you would think they could have thrown him a bone in the set someplace...looking forward to the easy wind and attics...

tambourine duty reminds me of a letterman top ten:

top ten tambourine performances of all time, here is the top five or close:

5. davie jones...monkees reunion tour 94
4. stivie nicks...f. mac rumours tour
3. davie jones...monkees reunion tour 98
2. davie jones...monkees first tour
2. josie from josie and the pussycats...any performance
1. davie jones...last train to clarksville studio

some things you can't purge from your mind no matter how hard you try...

Damn--I read the first few words and recalled the comment about buying a guide! Sorry! Getting old...

Yeah, tambourine is just not my typical interest, but I guess I recall Mick Jagger once in a great while, or Linda Ronstadt (when thin and young, hmmmm...I might take her for best looking shaker...).

Funny, but Jones is playing TONIGHT out here at one of the PHX area casinos! Not sure if that is sad or reason to rejoice...Monkees are one of my quilty pleasures these days after hating them with such a passion so long ago...

I have often thought the same about Pig. I have not researched it enough, or heard enough incidently to know what he did, but many times appears to have been more or less "left out" though again, not really sure. He did use some various tinkering sorts of instruments along with Mickey, I guess, but would love to hear from someone that saw him live in those few transitional years to get a better feel for it...

no worries william tell...I was remiss in not mentioning that I believe redundancy is a virtue, since it might be the only way I remain virtuous...

I overheard friends talking once at a bar: "you got to give him credit since the details are always the same so the stories must be true..."

brain jonestown massacre: I always loved the name and always heard positives, but for some reason never went to see them. But after doing some surfing I shall listen to them soon. It looks like the band goes through some line-up changes. Any favorite periods or line-ups?

so I gave up laughing at tambourines after seeing lowell george play one during a seemingly never ending guitar solo...it just made me shake my head...one of those: "how did he do that..." (that guy, had some talent to say the very least)...plus, the names currently escape me but I ended up tracking down some pretty good performers...


do you remember this monkees hit:

well she sat on my face,
now I'm a believer.
no not a trace
of doubt in my mind.
said I'm a believer,
yeah yeah....now I am a believer

I've got that Chrome Dreams here in mp3 format if anybody wants I'll post a link.

Also have El Dorado - a 5 song EP Japan only release of some serious distortion ridden Neil.

Used to have the Citizen Kane disk but lost it in a hard drive crash a while back. Was some good scheisse.
